First review at FORGOTTEN SCROLL webzine

Melodic Metal pioneers STAR.GATE are back with their sixth full length album entitled “Escaping The Illusion” (SGR CD-074).

Α monumental release that highlights the brilliant level of songwriting and musicianship of the band.

A universe of dreamy melodies delivered through an epic soundscape of neoclassical magic. This is not an illusion.

This is real music for the soul.

This new album features vocals by the band’s new singer, Manos Fatsis. Through his excellent voice Manos is taking the music of Star.Gate to the very next level!
